As was the case last year, the draw for the Champions League group stage has our fans rubbing their hands together in the knowledge that we should progress . Our group contains Portuguese side SC Braga, Turkish champions Galatasaray and Romanian champions CFR Cluj.
You look at the group and you have to fancy us to top it quite comfortably, but as previously mentioned, we thought this last year though, we failed to progress from a group containing Benfica, FC Basel and Otelul Galati. Lets just hope Sir Alex doesn’t underestimate any one of our opponents, because as we know all to well, there are no ‘easy’ games in the Champions League.
All eight Champions League groups in full:
Group A: Porto, Dynamo Kyiv, PSG, Dinamo Zagreb
Group B: Arsenal, Schalke, Olympiakos, Montpellier
Group C: AC Milan, Zenit, Anderlecht, Malaga
Group D: Real Madrid, Man City, Ajax, Dortmund
